Setting Foundations With Puppy School
Puppyhood is a crucial period for any dog (just like childhood for us). It really is worth putting in some extra effort to help him/her grow into a dog that you, the family and the neighbours all enjoy. Especially crucial is the period between the ages of 6-20wk, called the “socialisation period”. During this time a puppy is learning how the world works; which things are good and bad; what’s acceptable and what’s unacceptable.
Puppies that are not socialised sufficiently tend to become either fearful or aggressive as dogs. That’s why you see guide dog puppies going EVERYWHERE – to give them experience of every place they will need to take their human during their career.
Our puppy preschool, lead by nurse Myf continues to be very popular with over 200 puppies having attended so far.
